About National Grammar Day
National Grammar Day was established in 2008 by Martha Brockenbrough, founder of the Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar (SPOGG) and author of Things That Make Us [Sic]. See our letter from President Bush.
In 2017, National Grammar Day is hosted by Mignon Fogarty, the author of the New York Times best-selling book Grammar Girl's Quick and Dirty Tips for Better Writing and The Grammar Devotional.
Check out Mignon's appearance on the Today Show in honor of National Grammar Day! She helped Kathie Lee and Hoda quiz audience members. Find out if wine o' clock is in the Oxford Dictionary.
